Once home to the Roman Emperor Diocletian and later ruled by the Austrian and Italian empires, the city of Split is famous for its rich and colourful history. Today, narrow streets wind around the towering marble columns and ruins of Diocletian’s Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). The atmosphere is most impressive at night.
The lungs of the city
A short walk from Split is the Marjan National Park where dense pine forests stretch far across the rolling coastal hills. A scattering of medieval villas can be found, hidden amongst the trees along with two beautiful, pebbled bays - Jezinac and Kastelet - popular with locals and travellers alike.
A secluded coastal spot
The mysterious and secluded Pakleni islands have remained relatively undisturbed. Quiet beaches, natural lagoons and a handful of villages make this tranquil spot a lovely place to unwind with family and friends.
The party island
Nestled between the lavender-laden hills, Hvar town has an energetic and vibrant atmosphere that is infectiously fun. Alongside bohemian boutiques, art-galleries and jewellery makers, the island is famous for throwing beautifully wild parties. Start with a sundowner and end up on the dance floor - a night in Hvar is not to be missed.
